Temptress - Poem by Robert B. Glass

Amber waves flowing in the wind,
displaying her beauty puts me in mind of the
original sin. Life's warm love radiates from her form
not a more beautiful child of woman has been born.
wrapped in rays of sunlight on a cloud she will
dance, filling men's hearts with thoughts of romance.
Tempting them with her pleasures that will
make them risk the fires of Hell. To kiss and
caress this sweet Jezebel, flights of delight
on warm summer nights find her in an earthly
form, in that woman that you long to hold and
adore. Kindling the fire that burns inside man,
spurring him to that
ancient plan.

    This is so delightful. Well done! I think it is the best one in this category.
    Reminds of Salome the temptress.
